    How many apples?

    Hi, looking to make some 'proper' cider with real apples soon, (currently have three batches of turbo cider on the go), as was wondering roughly how many apples, in pound weight, would I need to produce 1 gallon of cider? Would it be a case of multiplying that amount to produce 2 or 3 gallons? 👍

    First batch of TC ready for bottling??

    Hi, my first batch of turbo cider has been brewing for about 6 weeks (3 weeks in a secondary DJ racked when SG was 1.000). Just over a week ago I pulled some into a sanitized plastic bottle and put it into a fridge just to see what happened. Today, I tried it and it wasn't half bad 😆. Not too...

    To Campden or not to Campden.....

    So.....if I wanted to store the cider for a while it could be beneficial to add a tablet but it has drawbacks. 🤔. Might be worth making a couple of test batches, one with and one without, just to see what the difference is. Much to consider. Thanks for the reply doublejef 👍

    To Campden or not to Campden.....

    ......that is the question. I have two batches of TC nearly ready for bottling and have read numerous posts saying you should add Campden tablets and a lot saying you shouldn't. What's the right thing to do and what would happen if you did or didn't? Most confusing 😆

    Have I got this right, you don't have to rinse/washoff chem san once you've sprayed it on?

    TC ready for bottling?

    Thanks Chalkyt. I topped up the AJ in my 2nd batch yesterday (which had stopped bubbling after 3 days), gave it a gentle shake and this morning it was bubbling away nicely again. I'll take a reading again in a couple of days and look into the finishing hydrometer. 👍

    TC ready for bottling?

    Thanks, I took a reading today on both batches and it was in the 1.000 region. I'll take another reading in a couple of days. I'm a little concerned that the first batch, now in its 14th day, is not getting any clearer. Would racking it to another DJ and putting it in a fridge help? Had a...

    TC ready for bottling?

    Hi, had one 5 ltr DJ of turbo cider 'brewing' for 10 days and was wondering if it would be ready for bottling. It stopped bubbling 3 days ago and has only belched a bubble now and then. I was thinking of doing this tomorrow but wanted some advice first. Once bottled, should I put it somewhere...

    2nd turbo cider questions

    Hi. I started off a 2nd turbo cider today slightly different from my first which is 7 days old now and just stopped bubbling like mad and has reduced to one now and then. Would this be a good time to top up the apple juice to just under the neck? Would doing this start off fermentation again...

    Newbie alert!

    Hi, been thinking about making my own cider for a while and have finally taken the plunge and invested in a press. I thought, to ease myself in gently, I'd try making some of this turbo cider I keep hearing about. I've watched a few you tube videos and it is apparent that having clean...
